    Paris saw a record high temperature of 42.6C (108.7F) on Thursday July 25, 2019



    Paris saw a record high temperature of 42.6C (108.7F) on Thursday, amid a heatwave that broke records across Western Europe.

    A red alert was issued in north France. Germany also set a new national temperature record of 41.5C - bypassing the figure set just a day before.

    The UK recorded a record temperature for July of 38.1C, with trains told to run more slowly to stop rail buckling.

    The Netherlands also recorded its highest ever temperature at 40.7C.

    "Climate change has increased the likelihood and severity of heatwave episodes across Europe," the UK's national weather service said.

    They had thought we might break the all-time record of 38.4C, but looks like it didn't quite happen.

    If you're kissing Death make sure you've got a blue protruding tongue.

    Or maybe it did - record of 38.7C yesterday has come in, but not from an official Met Office station so needs to be confirmed.

    And today, the Tour de France was halted due to a snow storm.
